STATEMENT: CAP’s Neera Tanden on ThinkProgress Video

Washington, D.C. — Neera Tanden, president and CEO of the Center for American Progress, released the following statement today:

The orientation of CAP is to positively engage with all political leaders about the country’s future.

ThinkProgress is editorially independent of CAP and CAP Action, which is what has made it valuable as a news outlet. Similarly, we at CAP can form our own opinions of their work. We believe the content of the ThinkProgress video critiquing Sen. Sanders is overly harsh and does not reflect our approach to a constructive debate of the issues.
